Meet Sung-bong Choi:
Hamas is reporting record turnouts for its summer camps for children in 2011.
The ‘summer camps,’ combining Islamic indoctrination, paramilitary training, and social activities are set to begin again this year as United Nation’s summer camps, considered competition by Hamas, are being openly denigrated by jihadists.
Children and adolescents are an important target demographic for Hamas, from which its future army of terrorists will be recruited. Summer camps are an important means for indoctrinating Gaza’s youth with Hamas’ jihadist ideology.
In 2010 Hamas ran camps for an estimated 100,000 campers, a number similar to 2009. The Islamic Jihad terror group ran 51 camps with 10,000 participating boys and girls.
Hamas spokesman Ismail Radwan reported the objectives of the camps were to raise a generation of children with ‘genuine Islamic values.’
“Children working for the interests of their homeland and to educate them to the culture of the Islamic faith so they will remember their goals, including Jerusalem and the prisoners,” Radwan said
In addition to indoctrination, Hamas terrorists give children paramilitary training. Banners are hung on the walls with slogans extolling jihad and ‘death for the sake of Allah.’
And then there is peace to be had with such as these?! Only fools would believe that…

Could you imagine what would happen if Jews were to burn the Quran? But naturally, they don’t…
Some 200 Palestinians armed with bats and iron chains raided the illegal West Bank outpost of Gaon HaYarden Friday and burned Jewish holy books at the site, the settlers said.
The Arab attackers clashed with Jewish youths at the outposts before torching a hut and a tent that included a prayer corner and holy books. Security forces rushed to the scene and broke up the violence.
The Palestinians arrived at the outpost in dozens of vehicles and razed it. A leading member of the Jewish Hilltop Youth movement vowed to rebuild the outpost after the Shabbat.
“There were a few youths at the site when some 150 to 200 Palestinians carrying PLO flags and armed with bats and iron chains raided it,” an outpost resident told Ynet. “We managed to escape unharmed.”…
An “image of Jesus” seen in dripped wax by worshippers at a church in Wiltshire has been removed by a cleaner.
Good! The BBC reports:
The face was first spotted by a church warden at the parish church of Ogbourne St George at Easter.
The image, described as a a man with a long beard, was formed by candle wax dripping from the church’s pulpit.
Created over a four-month period, the wax image was apparently removed by a diligent cleaner last week, although nobody has owned up.
Nicky Irwin was the church warden who first spotted it.
“I was sitting in church just before Easter a little bit bored by a sermon when I saw it,” she said.
“I thought, ‘Oh my goodness that looks so much like a face’ and I thought ‘that could be Jesus’.”
The image could only be seen from a certain angle.
“You had to be in the right seat,” said Mrs Irwin.
“From the side it just looked like dripped wax. It was only when you looked at it face-on that you could see it.”
Although many within the small congregation saw a face some were unwilling to “sign up to more then that”, she said.
Despite going through the church’s cleaning rotas, no-one has admitted to scraping away the wax image.
“I felt really disappointed actually and I wished I’d done more about preserving it,” admitted Mrs Irwin.
“The Church of England is not very good at this sort of thing and if I’d done something sooner it could have been a bit of a money spinner.”
A money spinner?! That about says it all…
Okay, if you must know, a Tokoloshe is an (mythic) evil, dwarf-like water sprite. They are considered to be very mischievous indeed.
So here’s some news from our neigbouring state (and by that I mean country for our American readers)…
An attempt to appeal against a High Court judgement that confirmed his excommunication from the Roman Catholic Church over witchcraft allegations has ended in failure for former tokoloshe-battling priest Gert Petrus.
At every turn throughout his litigation with the Archdiocese of the Roman Catholic Church in Namibia, Father Petrus has failed to comply with court rules, Acting Judge of Appeal Kate O’Regan comments in the Supreme Court judgement in which an appeal by Petrus was struck from the court roll yesterday.
Judge O’Regan, with Judge of Appeal Sylvester Mainga and Acting Judge of Appeal Pius Langa agreeing with her, ordered that Petrus’s application for condonation for his late filing of an appeal to the Supreme Court was refused, his appeal was struck from the roll, and that he has to pay the legal costs of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese.
Petrus’s rift with his church’s leadership started in October and November 2004, when he claimed to have been the target of “witchcraft attacks” on himself.
After he had called on the special skills of Zimbabwean exorcists, an invisible demon was found in his parish residence, Petrus has claimed. The demon became visible after some salt water had been sprinkled over it, and he then had it destroyed by having it thrown into a fire, Petrus claimed.
The Church accused Petrus, who was ordained as a priest in 1986 and had been a parish priest in Khomasdal since 1993, of believing he had been bewitched by certain of his parishioners.
According to Petrus, three “objects of witchcraft” were “caught” on the premises of his church, St Mary’s Help of Christians Parish in Khomasdal, between October 28 and November 24 2004. When he then acted to have these forces of evil expelled from the church premises, he was trying to act against witchcraft, rather than participating in it, Petrus has stated.The Roman Catholic Archdiocese did not take kindly to the priest’s battle against evil, and informed him in a letter dated November 25 2004 that he had, through involvement “in the practice related to witchcraft”, excommunicated himself from the church…
There’s more here.
Perhaps he should have just left these little critters alone:
Yahoo.com News reports on an unfolding volatile situation in Jerusalem today:
Jerusalem – Israeli police say policemen have entered a sensitive Jerusalem holy site to disperse Palestinian protesters who were hurling stones.
The scene of Friday’s violence was the Old City compound known to Jews as the Temple Mount and to Muslims as the Noble Sanctuary.
Israeli spokesman Micky Rosenfeld says police entered the compound after Palestinians began lobbing stones at security forces stationed outside one of the gates. He says police used stun grenades to disperse the crowd.
Rosenfeld says no one was injured and that order was quickly restored.
The holy compound is one of the most combustible sites on earth, and clashes there in the past have ignited broader violence.
A Muslim clerical body runs the compound under Israel’s overall security control.
And also today: Israeli police enter Al-Aqsa mosque compound…
Israeli police briefly entered the flashpoint Al-Aqsa mosque compound after Friday prayers and fired tear gas towards stone-throwing youths, police and mosque officials said.
“After prayers some of the Arab youths started throwing stones,” a Jerusalem police spokeswoman said. “There were no injuries but when the stone throwing continued, police and border police entered the mosque compound to disperse the youths before leaving.”
Police fired tear gas and one person was arrested, she said.
A spokesman for the Islamic authorities that run the mosque said one or two youths had been throwing stones, but the incident ended quickly.
The sprawling mosque compound contains the Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Dome of the Rock and is the third holiest site in Islam after Mecca and Medina.
It is also the holiest site in Judaism because it was the location of the Second Temple, razed by the Romans in 70 AD.

“Here’s the thing. If abortion is the sanitary, morally-neutral act that pro-choice advocates want us to believe it is, then why the horror at the images? The simplest explanation is that the images are horrifying, and that they force us to confront the inconvenient reality that if the image of the act is horrifying, maybe the act itself is horrifying, too.”

The Dailymail reports:
An abnormal growth of blood vessels on her left eye could have blinded her.
But Christian couple Timothy and Rebecca Wyland relied on faith healing instead of taking infant daughter Alayna to a doctor.
Her condition has now improved under state-ordered medical care but her parents have been convicted in Oregon of felony criminal mistreatment.
Alayna was born in December 2009 and developed the blood vessels that covered her left eye and threatened her vision.
But her parents belong to unorthodox Oregon City congregation the Followers of Christ, which relies on faith healing.
So rather than taking their daughter to a doctor, they relied on prayer, anointing her with oil and laying hands on her.
Clackamas County sheriff’s deputy Emile Burley testified in May that he made a child welfare check at the family home in June 2010, and instantly noticed a ‘large bulging area’ on Alayna’s left eye.
It was ‘the size of a golf ball, maybe a little larger’, he said – and photos shown in court suggest at one point that it was as big as a baseball.
Her parents said in another hearing last July they wouldn’t have willingly taken her to a doctor because it would violate their religious beliefs…
They are expected to receive probation or some jail time, although the maximum jail sentence for first-degree criminal mistreatment is five years…
And apparently they are not the first people from the sect to be prosecuted:
Two other couples from the same church whose children died from untreated ailments have been prosecuted in the last two years.
Jeff and Marci Beagley got 16 months in jail after their son Neil, 16, died of complications from an untreated urinary tract blockage.
The Beagleys’ daughter’s husband, Carl Brent Worthington, was jailed for 60 days over the death of his young girl Ava, who had bronchial pneumonia and a blood infection.
Easily diagnosed and treated ailments are resulting even in death (!) simply because people are buying into the lies and false, distorted theology of wolves…
Catholic Priest Pleads Guilty To Stealing Thousands From Collection Plate is the headline that hits you this morning in the Huffington Post:
A Roman Catholic priest who allegedly stole about $400,000 from the attendees of the Roselle parish he once led pled guilty Thursday to one count of felony theft.
The Daily Herald reports that Rev. John Regan allegedly began stealing the money shortly after he started his position as the pastor of St. Walter Catholic Church in June 2006.
By July 2008, bank officials noticed strange transactions traced back to Regan and an internal audit revealed accounting irregularities at his former parish. The Diocese of Joliet subsequently removed him from his post. By that point, he had deposited thousands of dollars his parishioners contributed as collection-plate offerings into a personal account from which he allegedly made personal credit card payments, wrote checks to himself and gambled away money at riverboat casinos.
Regan was indicted in February 2009 after the results of the audit were sent to the DuPage County State’s Attorney’s office.
In addition to pleading guilty for one count of theft over $100,000 and another for continuing a financial crimes enterprise, Regan faces some 19 other criminal charges including money laundering. He could face a prison sentence of up to 15 years, although he will also be eligible for probation. His sentence is expected to be delivered in mid-August.
“Today, Mr. Regan pled guilty to some very serious charges,” said Robert B. Berlin, DuPage County State’s Attorney, in a statement. “He admitted he lined his pockets with money stolen from those who entrusted him with their spiritual well-being.”
According to the Chicago Sun-Times , Regan gambled at least $125,000 away at the Elgin Queen Victoria and Joliet Harrah’s at a time were his annual salary was only $25,000. At one point following his initial release from prison in early 2009, he entered into a counseling center to receive treatment for his gambling problem.
Yes, gambling is a sin. Evil. Caught in its snare, it will even lead men to steal from God! The above events are surely a fair warning and bear testimony to this fact.
